I have been thinking more and more about how much I'd like to be able to try right now and plan getting pregnant. Than just hoping that it happens on it's own. I'm not even sure if I even ovulate as I still have not had a pp af. I think because of me breastfeeding. I would so much like to start af and chart and have my dh say lets start trying for real. I do believe I will have one more baby. I just don't know when or how long it's going to take. I'd also like to see how my cycles are and when I ovulate. Before getting pregnant with my twins and with Lennox I always had 24-25 day cycles and would ovulate around cd's 10-12. I'm curious if it will change!
Anyone else wanting to go active?

Yes, wanting to.... but not quite TTC yet. It's an internal debate I keep having with myself. I am mom to 3 boys now... and feel like our family isn't right as an 'odd number' - really want to have just 1 more. At 1st I really wanted to try for a girl - now just want #4 no matter what the outcome. Healthy is all that really ever matters.
A bit nervous about timing - as its a decision that I don't want to regret. However, is there ever really a "right time"? We'll never feel like we're 100% ready - but I also feel that IF its going to happen we need to do it now or never... my oldest is already 7yrs and my youngest is turning 3..... I don't want any bigger of a gap... the would-be 4 yr gap between my youngest and a new baby would be the biggest gap between all my children.
So, in my mind I keep saying that I'll be ready to try in the fall (Sept/Oct) - that way I can take another few months to make sure I'm really ready... although I have to admit I've been wanting another for over a year now and the yearning is not going away- its only getting stronger each and every day....
I was NTNP until I got pg in November 09 and then miscarried shortly thereafter. We had been nervous about timing too. But my DH said (before the m/c) is there ever a "right" time?? We'd probably NEVER say "We're 100% ready". So he said in a way, it was good that it just happened. Then I m/c, and we realized how much we REALLY wanted #3 and we decided to TTC from then on. Took a few months because my cycles were a little off, but now here I am. I stayed on this board because I was comfortable here.
